Although it’s unclear what “miskeen” means to Drake, it’s a sympathetic term used in both Arabic and Amharic, an Ethiopian Semitic language. The word is also considered to be Toronto slang, according to the University of Toronto Magazine, suggesting that the tat is meant to pay homage to his city.
This isn’t the For All the Dogs rapper’s first face tattoo either. Last year, he got the initials “S.G.” inked under his left eye in honor of his mother, Sandra Gale.
Drake couldn’t wrap up the night without getting into some nostalgia himself. He hit the stage to guide the crowd into a sing-a-long of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
